The 3 Things To Avoid When Emailing Your List

When you decide to have an opt-in list, it is not just a matter of sending your subscribers your promotional newsletters or catalogs. There are many things to consider in avoiding many complications. While there are so many ways you can make people subscribe to your list, there are also some things you must do to avoid subscribers from wanting to get off from your list.

Aside from that, you also want to avoid any problems with the law and your internet service provider or ISP. There are now many laws and rules that are applied to help protect the privacy of the internet users from spamming and unwanted mails. With the popularity of the electronic mail as a medium for marketing because of the low cost, many companies have seized the opportunity and have flooded many people’s e-mail accounts with promotional mail.

But, with an opt-in list, you avoid this annoyance because people subscribe to the list; they want to receive the newsletters and promotional materials. They have consented to being on the list by subscribing themselves, just don’t forget to put an unsubscribe feature everytime in your opt-in list so that you avoid any confusion. There may be times when an email account was provided when the real owner didn’t want to subscribe.

It is essential that you keep your list clean and manageable. Arrange it by using the many tools and technologies available for your opt-in list. Do not worry; your investment in this marketing strategy is well worth it with all the coverage you will get which will likely be converted into sales then to profit.

Keep yourself and your business out of trouble and potential run-ins with the law and the internet service providers. Keep your operation legit and clean. Your reputation as a legitimate businessman and a legitimate site depends on your being a straight and true marketing strategist. As a tip, here are three things to avoid when emailing your list.

1) Take notice of your unsuccessful sends. These are the e-mails that bounce. Bounced emails, also known as undeliverable messages, are those messages that, for whatever reason, were not successfully received by the intended recipient.

There are bounces that happen or occur because the server was busy at that time but can still be delivered in another time. There are also bounces because the inbox of the recipient is full at that time. There are those bounce messages that are simply undeliverable ever. The reason for this is that it may be an invalid email address, a misspelled email address, or an email address that was abandoned and erased already.

Manage your list by putting markings on those that bounce. Erase an email account from your list so that you have an accurate statistics and records as to how many are actually receiving your mail. You may also want to check the spellings of your email addresses in your list. One common mistake is when an N instead of an M is placed in the .com area.

2) Always provide an unsubscribe feature in your site and an unsubscribe link in your mails. When someone in your list files a request to be unsubscribed, always take that request seriously. If you don’t take them off your list and keep sending them your e-mails, you are now sending them spam mail.

When you are reported as a spammer, you and your business can get into a lot of trouble. You can be reported to the authorities and maybe blacklisted by many internet service providers. You will lose a lot of subscribers this way and many more in potential subscribers.

3) Do not provide pornographic or shocking and disturbing content in your newsletters. It is hard to decipher the age of the recipient and many complaints may stem from these. Controversial issues also are to be avoided to not be branded by your subscribers. Stick to the nature of your site and business.

Always remember these tips in this article so that you can have a healthy relationship with your subscribers as well as be kept within the boundaries of what is allowed in sending mails to an opt-in list.

Online Business with Autoresponders

Hello,  this is kind of more on email marketing,

Autoresponders can do a lot for your business, whether or not it’s an Internet Marketing Business or a Brick and Mortar business. An Autoresponder is your automatic sales machine. It will deliver your messages and promotional material for you at whatever intervals you choose. A few things you can do with them follows:

• Deliver F~R~E~E Reports
• Provide Technical Support Follow-up
• Deliver Online Sales and Training Courses
• Deliver Frequently Asked Questions
• Process Online Forms
• Deliver Promotional Material

There are several kinds of Autoresponders you can use, PC based software is one,  or you can host online your own script/program, or you can use an Autoresponder service. I will list several at the end of this article. I prefer the latter due to it eliminating many of the problems the others pose.

Some of those problems related to the first two examples are:
First if it’s PC based, your using you ISP service to send those emails out, many have limits on how many emails you can send, or bandwidth restrictions, and if someone forgets they signed up to receive your emails they can trace your IP address and complain to your ISP. This is a real hazard when you import purchased leads/addresses and mail unsolicited emails.

The second example you are using a hosted script/software etc. and you also run the same sort of risks. Most hosting providers have limits on the amount of emails you can send. Again, you also deal with people who forget they signed up, and run the same risk with unsolicited mailings with purchased leads.

With these two examples there are several ways around the issues at hand. Using a VPN to cover your tracks with the first can help. You can also send a one time email, and not be breaking spam laws if it is requesting them to opt-in. Once they opt-in you are relatively safe.

The third example… using a Autoresponder service removes these problems for the most part. You have to pay a monthly fee. But if your using your Autoresponder correctly and getting a good ROI on your mailings, it should certainly cover the cost. No Autoresponder is the right one if you don’t know how to use them to make money, if that is your objective. Not everyone uses them for this purpose.

Autoresponders are great to have, as they are designed to automatically respond to any email they receive with an instant response. You can run an automatic series at different time intervals on a schedule and also usually do broadcasts for special deals and promotions as often as needed. They can save you a great amount of time, and sort of run your business for you when you are away, or even sleeping. You see the ads sometimes, earn while you sleep, Autoresponders are one way of that happening… though there are others, such as having ads running while your out doing something else, basically running your business on auto-pilot.

You can also update your messages as needed within your Autoresponder. If prices change, Deals are no longer available, or a myriad of other reasons. You can change frequency of your messages/emails, and update those messages accordingly. When running your business, it’s important to keep your subscribers updated. It’s how your customers will know about new products and deals. If you have a good relationship with them, they’ll be looking forward to your new offers.

We will discuss more about Autoresponders, using them with lead capture/splash pages and using content, ebooks, free offers and more to generate your leads with them in the next post. For now let me leave you with some providers that we use. We use several providers for different reasons and projects. Some of these providers will give you free use of their service. There are some limits with them as to what you can do, such as importing leads, or how many subscribers, or time you can use their free trial. But you should check them out and see what features you require.

A low cost marketing approach – Email!

Email marketing is a very effective method when it comes to responsive, low-cost internet marketing projects. Because it is the most widely-used and has a reputation for bringing targeted traffic to websites. It is also used to stay in touch with your customers, or prospective customers, send out invitations, or make special offers.

It’s a great way to reach large amounts of customers in a cost effective way that will result in more sales and more traffic to your offers and website, if done right with the proper tools. Namely an autoresponder. Choosing a good service is very important. Some have much higher delivery rates than others. You can use email marketing for virtually any type of business or product. All, or I should say, almost all companies use it to some extent.

It’s as easy as writing an e-mail that may be in a form of a letter or an advertisement that’s well constructed, and sending it to as many targeted recipients as possible. However, trying a hardsell on cold prospects will often not get very good results. One way of increasing the likelihood of effectively writing an email is to be sure and have interesting and informative content in your email/letter that will benefit the receiving party.

One advantage of email marketing is it can be effective for
both large and small businesses. When it comes to regular
commerce, a larger company can afford to print up colorful
fliers and ads. Smaller businesses have less opportunity to do this because of the expense if hiring a writer, or time involved,  if doing it themselves. It can also be done using software,  so even small businesses can create effective and professional looking marketing emails at a reasonable cost.

Email marketing costs considerably less as we mentioned earlier than other types of marketing. This savings is after the cost of research, testing,
and sending the emails. Email marketing consulting and writers is usually less expensive than other marketing consultants. This means you can decide to save money, or spend more, but reach less or more prospects. You have to weigh the differences and do some testing to see what works for you and what kind of return you get on your investment, (ROI).

We’ll talk more on that in a follow up article later this week, and talk more about autoresponders and all the ways you can use them. This is the one tool you can’t do without to be effective in your email marketing. Automating your marketing and campaigns is very valuable in this area.

For now let me leave you with the service I suggest and use.There are lots of reasons I’ll cover later, but I will let their site speak for them.  Easily Create, Send, and Track Unlimited Sales Letters, Follow-up Messages, Articles, and Special Offers:  Visit Here

Just a little about e-books and marketing

Hey Everyone…

So I decided today to talk about ebooks and marketing. I use them quite a bit for promotion and I have a free package you can pick up
at the end of this writing.

I have been asked a lot about writing ebooks and some people have difficulty coming up with ideas and content for their ebook. I have the problem quite a bit myself. I’m not a writer by trade. Or by any other means. I do write a lot of my own emails for marketing. Products, Services, whatever. Sometimes I work off others work. Sometimes I use PLR, (Private Label Rights) material.

You can do a Google search and you will come up with a lot of material there. You can check out others like Rapidshare, or other search engines, and you’ll get thousands of results.

If your gonna use them for marketing you need to be sure you can use them legally. one good reason I like PLR. Try to get stuff that’s quality writing or you can do more damage than good in the long run. People will start to avoid what you offer if you give away a lot of low quality stuff.

Now lets talk about promoting and driving traffic for a minute. First a good website or blog to host your products is important. Some people I know create a blog for each ebook. Easy to do and you can ping your blog and get some natural traffic from organic search results as well.

In driving the most online traffic and making money with your blog, you should post often and create posts that interest your past as well as potential customers. Regular posts that are interesting to read will keep your readers coming back and buying from you.

Next is creating a funnel for your offer. A well created funnel can maximize your sales before, during and after, (follow-up series) your original offer. You can create them yourself, get pre-made, or even outsource. You can use sites like freelance to find people who will do this for you at reasonable prices.

So I know I have not covered things in real depth. But it’s a start,  and a few ideas  that I have learned over time.

Here is what I promised,  kinda,  at the beginning,  who knows

Online Security-Identity theft and Fraud

Online Security-Identity theft and Fraud

Data predicts that by the end of 2020, global ecommerce sales will reach $4.2 trillion and make up 16% of total retail sales. And these numbers are only predicted to go up as we continue into the ‘20s. More and more people are interested in the convenience of online shopping and are spending higher amounts. Unfortunately, the probabilities of becoming a victim of Internet fraud also are increasing.

Total identity fraud reached $16.9 billion (USD) in 2019 With over 270,000 reports, credit card fraud was the most common type of identity theft last year and more than doubled from 2017 to 2019. Complaints relating to online purchases or online shopping fraud raised by about 575% in the last 4 years. Remember you must file a complaint within two years from the date fraud, deficiency in service or defect in goods has arisen or detected.

While most reputable e-commerce websites, and online marketing companies have taken the necessary safety precautions to protect you, it never hurts to proceed cautiously. If you’re making a web purchase consider these easy steps:

1. Use only one card, I recommend a pre-paid debit card, (there are many, such as Greendot, AM-EX Serve, Bluebird, and many others), that you reserve for online purchases only. Transfer only enough money to that card to complete your purchases at that time. You may also consider a low limit credit card that you only use for this specific purpose.

2. Stay aware of unsolicited offers by sellers that you don’t know and trust. Scammers use email or text messages to fool you into giving up your personal information. They may try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they might gain access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these a day — and they’re often successful. The FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center reported that folks lost $57 million to phishing schemes in one year. While the offer may be legitimate, spammers like to use these tactics to side-step reputable sites that provide consumer protection for online purchases.

3. Use only reputable websites that list Main corporate address or Local addresses, if applicable ,
Email address(es), Phone Number or numbers, if applicable, Chat, if applicable, Social media channels,
if applicable, Fax numbers, if applicable

4. Read all of the website’s policies carefully. Some websites reserve the right to sell/give your information to a third party. Check the policies to see if they allow an opportunity to “opt-out” of receiving emails and/or special offers from the company and/or third-party vendors, or for permission to share your personal information. Every email should have a opt-out option at the bottom.

5. Check for a lock symbol in the address bar at the top left, you can click on that lock and see if the certificate is valid, how many cookies are in use, and to set site settings of your choice. Also, don’t provide your personal information if the web site address doesn’t start with “https” (a sign that the location is employing a secure server). Look for SSL Certificates and Trust Logos from reputable sources, and check that they are valid. Any data you submit to these websites over a https connection will be securely encrypted with the strongest available algorithms. By choosing Sectigo SSL for instance, the owners of these websites have proven that customer security is their highest priority,and the SSL certificate used by this website carries a $50,000 warranty to further protect customer purchases.

6. Choose only verified sellers. Check to see if the vendor is a verified member of a reputable third party such as the Better Business Bureau, VeriSign, Guardian eCommerce, Paypal verified, ect. These third-party sites help to make sure online consumers are going to be protected when shopping or conducting e-commerce transactions.

7. Make sure the delivery date posted is semi-normal . If you have not purchased from the vendor on a regular basis, be wary of any Website that states the shipment will be 15 or more days. Delivery dates of 7-10 days are most common.

8. Keep a written record of all online transactions. Print out a hard copy of the transaction and keep it in a folder for future reference.

9. Be very careful of website offers that sound too good to be true. The Internet is cluttered with get rich quick schemes and scams… and false advertising claims. Investigate all claims thoroughly before proceeding. I like to start with https://www.urlvoid.com/ but, there are many other resources for checking if a website and it’s owners are legit.

10. If you don’t get what you paid for, and the vendor does not return your emails or calls, contact your payment processor and/or card company as many of them have protections in place, and contact your state’s Department of Consumer Affairs for further assistance.
